It was as good as I expected it to be.

I thought it was good!

Some good third party announcements like Little Nightmares, Crash Bandicoot, etc. Some proper release dates for games like Mario Tennis Aces, Octopath Traveler, etc.

We also finally got to see some gameplay for things like Travis Strikes Back and Dark Souls Remastered.

Smash at the end was a great tease, the Splatoon 2 Octoling DLC looked cool, and Mario Tennis Aces looks like it could be a lot of fun as well.

Now thinking about it, Smash HAS TO BE the game of E3 for Nintendo, much like Zelda and Mario before it, Smash will be the theme for Nintendo at E3.Thats going to be another exciting E3 for whoever goes to Nintendo booth.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I'm pretty happy with this. There was decent stuff for 3DS, including Detective Pikachu, the Wario game and Dillon (although I had hoped Dillon would make the jump to Switch soon). I had low expectations at this point for Okami HD and Southpark, but both came. Crash was a total surprise for me. New info on Hyrule Warriors, Dark Souls, Octopath and Mario Tennis was highly satisfying. Also the Treasure Tracker port is highly welcomed by me. Splatoon story mode DLC looks... decent.

And then the megabomb: Smash, and this year.

But the best part: except for Smash everything was announced for Summer. So end of the year is still open for some big titles.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

And it HAS be Smash 5.I dont know, it was presented in such a way that it screams "this is a sequel"

A full 10. Crash on switch!!!
Splatoon Octo DLC and Smash...

One of the best directs I've seen. I am very satisfied.

Reached PC master race level.

Pretty good. Filled out the first half of the year lineup and provided a MAJOR release in Smash. We'll be arguing over whether BotW Link means it's a whole new Smash for a bit.

Octoling DLC, Okami, Dark Sould meme amiibo, Crash and SMASH. 8/10 solid Direct.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

10 because of Smash.


Not disappointing and not amazing. Other than Smash Bros, the other new games announced were ports. Got some new details on games that we already knew about. Got a tiny little tease of Smash Bros. All of this is decent, but not a lot of "wow" factor either. Really this is exactly what I expected from this direct. (Also I still think Switch will have a disappointing year.)
